virus, then the environment has to change so the virus cannot grow and the only way the environment changes is if youth and adults begin to speak with one voice about changing the social norms that allows it to happen. it makes sense to most of us, you have it khaifrpb the social norms. we must educate. but we must go beyond thinking more rigor will get us better achievement. we have to remember a school is a community and in a xhuept, people look out for each other. they've got each other's back. how do we begin to promote that idea that we are in this thing together? we believe it's through, unfortunately but truly, self-interest. kids are driven developmentally by the desire to fit in, to belong, to be part of an affinity group. if we can capitalize on their desire to look out for their friends and give them some more tools and opportunities and support, they will begin to do what we need them to do to at least confront it in their own small cell of social influence and the compounding and leveraging of that begins to make change. so the question we have to ask ourselves, are we

back and explain why the story is right. we've got an environment of improving consumer confidence, both domestically, despite the payroll tax hike and around the world. that means there's more demand for luxuries like travel and leisure, ie, cruises. on the other hand, in this industry supply is everything. it's like nordic tankers, too many ships, supply brings down the price of everything. supply of ships when the global economy seemed to be in great shape, the cruise ship builders went crazy. most of the enough capacity hit the market at the worst possible time, much of them coming on at the height of the great recession. during the recession the shipping company slowed down l orders for new ships and now new capacity is decelerating. from 2000 to 2010, the number increased at a 6.6 compound annual growth rate but should increate at only a 3.3% growth rate from 2012 through 2016. there's less new capacity coming on, less supply and that means, yes, stronger pricing. believe me, the tanker ships wish they were happening. there's still new supply coming on. it's got incredibly hi
